"Collector's Edition" - Ha! It's a bootleg (which, I might add, Discogs is allowing for sale). What makes it special? Is it because it's a CDr? Or the lack of packaging in the authentic version? The poor design? Who can say?

And yes, i have one. I'm a sucker.

Phew, after reading below comments I was worried. Cleaned the LPs before playing; store them in static-free sleeves. All 4 sides sound terrific! Vinyl gods must be smiling down on me ;}

Wow man, I got to say I'm blown away by the feedback written on this version, so much that I felt the need to bring some justice into it. I got mine directly from WASTE, I ordered it like a second after they started selling on the website. As everyone should know, the packaging is stunning, truly premium presentation and crafted with solid materials, you honestly get what you are paying for.

Getting into the record, at a first listen there was some noise going on, but very tolerable, I noticed rich textures, a well defined bass and stunning orchestrated sections. After that, I did some cleaning just using my regular kit, and all the noise went away. I gotta say I have never had any problems with the album and much less never get any distortion as some people commented above.

I purchased my copy from a merch table in April of 2017, then shelved it until this evening.

The overall packaging and presentation is stunning, but just as the others have stated, the pressing is terrible. The first disk has a rash on both sides, the spindle hole of both records is far too small, and the pressing itself sounds terrible. Decks Dark, Burn the Witch, and others are badly distorted.

Very, very disappointed...mostly because I love this record.

Definitely be careful with this release and many vinyl releases of Radiohead albums. My copy is almost unlistenable due to overwhelming noise when the songs become too layered or mid-frequency heavy. Beautiful packaging and stunning artwork by Stanley Donwood, and the music itself is top, just be warned and do some research before purchasing. I have read that most European releases don't suffer the same problems, but I might be wrong.

Shame. This is a great album. And I love Radiohead. But this pressing is surface-noisy as fk. I take excellent care of my records and have been collecting for 20+ years.. perhaps you hipsters don't know the difference, but I do; I have an extensive collection and it is not my setup. I bought this (the deluxe version) direct from waste. Beautiful album. Beautiful packaging. But I hate listening to this ultra crap pressing. I hope Radiohead do make another album and I also hope that they get someone involved in QA to get it right next time.

Three years on and I find myself spinning the white edition without realising the timing. I was lucky with my copy, superb and haunting sonics and still one of the best albums I've heard in recent years.

My copy sounds perfect, once washed with discwasher d4 fluid. If that doesn't work, try a deeper cleaning. It sounds heavenly :)
(Mine is this edition, but I got it in June of 2016 when it came out.)

I got mine direct from waste too and it's spot on. An absolute beaut of a record.

My copy of this is poor. Especially towards the end of decks dark there is repeating click as if the vinyl is scratched but it isn't. I haven't got a cleaner so have not tried cleaning yet. Easily the disappointing new record in my collection.
